"An authentic, golden, raspy voice that sings comfortably over folk-driven rhythmic guitar lines... ...His personal, nostalgic lyrics are wonderfully descriptive giving his music a relatable and also gorgeously humble tone." - Spotify Community
Mike McKenna Jr is a singer-songwriter from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. His gritty and powerful vocal tells colourful narratives, creating an honest, soulful, storytelling style that has captured the attention of listeners in the international folk community.
In his debut EP Travelin Man (2016), he paints contemporary subject matter and stories of his travels with influences of traditional Maritime folklore, offering the perspective of working class Atlantic Canada in his oil-workers ballad 'Die in the West'.
Mike is now nearing completion of his first full-length album, working with Quebec's FELIX award-winning and CFMA nominated producer Simon Marion (Les Poules a Colin), with a May 2017 scheduled release date soon to be announced!
